We visited the annual British Virgin Island (BVI) and US Virgin Islands (USVI) Crewed Yacht Charter Shows over the past two weeks, and we can report back that we were truly impressed with the quality of the yachts, the crew, the charter itineraries, the quality of menus and produce, water toys selections and the overall charter programs.  We saw over 120 yachts, and we were wowed!


WHAT MAKES A GREAT CHARTER YACHT?   We can confirm that the CREW is still the most important part of selecting a charter yacht.  Their knowledge, skills, and attitude towards charter guests make for a successful charter.  We experienced warm hospitality and service onboard the yachts from 45 feet to 90 feet.  The crew participated in culinary, cocktail, and tablescape competitions to show off the quality of the yacht offerings even more.  The attention to detail, anticipating our needs, and always having a helping hand made us feel pampered and cared for.


The comfort of the YACHTS, with their grandeur flybridges, dining areas, sun lounging, and relaxing spaces, offers the ultimate vacation experience for families and friends wishing to soak up the island’s beauty while being pampered.  The personalized itineraries, tailor-made menus, and one-on-one water sports instruction make a charter week unique and special for your group.


We had individualized tours of the yachts, sampled breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus, tasted cocktails and wine selections, and experienced service on a high level.  We met with vendors:  hotel groups (for accommodation before and after the charter), water and land taxi services, and specialty food and wine provisioners to enhance the charter experience.


If you have not experienced a crewed yacht charter, now is the time!  Once you have been on a crewed yacht charter, you will never vacation the same again; you will be spoiled for life!
